This program focuses on the fundamentals of baseball, and is designed to build a solid foundation for becoming a successful ballplayer.
The Coach Pitch Division is for younger boys and girls with limited baseball experience but who have usually played Tee Ball and are ready to begin hitting a coached pitched ball. This division of play primarily builds on the fundamentals that players received in Tee Ball but it is also a good age group for new players of the sport to begin participating. Players will continue to develop in baseball, social and leadership skills.
Each Little Leaguer is required to play one season of Tee Ball before being eligible to be evaluated by the local league officials for consideration to advance to a higher division of Little League baseball, usually Coach Pitch. Most players are encouraged to complete two years in Tee Ball before graduating to Coach Pitch.
In this division, coaches will pitch to their teams using a Safety 1 level baseball for the maximum number of pitches as indicated in the rules with no player strike outs.
Coach Pitch is offered for an extended spring season featuring 1 practice per week for the first 5 to 6 weeks followed by 1 game per week for the remaining 5 to 6 weeks. More information on scheduling is available on our Spring Season page.
